Cross-Listing Course Information

  • Once grades have been added, this cross-listing cannot be undone.
  • A request must be completed every semester.
  • It is not necessary to Cross-List a lecture and a lab/activity course when the roster is exactly the same. In this case, instructors should use one course shell and not publish the other.
  • As part of this Cross-List Request, one course will be named the PARENT course and all others are designated as CHILD courses.
  • Only work in the PARENT course shell.
  • Courses should remain un-published until Cross-Listing has occurred.
  • If the Cross-List includes more than one instructor, the request must be SIGNED BY ALL instructors.
  • If there are multiple instructors requesting the Cross-Listing, only one instructor will be used for the ONLINE Student Evaluations of Faculty at the end of the semester.
